The Lyle Thomas label is produced by Spindrift Cellars, a small family owned boutique winery located in Philomath, Oregon founded by Matthew and Tabitha Compton. From their first vintage in 2003, they have been dedicated to producing "Certified Sustainable Oregon Pinot Noir," true to varietal character with fruit from vineyards using sustainable growing practices. Sourcing fruit from throughout the Willamette Valley, winemaker Matt Compton creates an exciting red full of alluring notes of raspberries, wildflowers and strawberry jam. Soft vanilla notes open up to red berry and cherry pie flavors, while moderate acidity gives it length on the palate with an enjoyable lingering finish. Only 500 cases produced, this is an outstanding value for Willamette Valley Pinot Noir!
